Several prominent "consumer groups" advocating against net neutrality and in favor of a two-tiered internet have been shown to be funded by cable companies, Vice reports. Broadband for America, supposedly "a coalition of 300 internet consumer advocates, content providers, and engineers," received $2 million out of its $3.5 million budget from the National Cable and Telecom Association. Vice found similar evidence for other groups claiming to represent everyday Americans. Meanwhile, other members of Broadband for America didn't even know they were a part of the group.
